    I know this comment is late, but I hoped ChrisFix did a prank with the parts car to fool his Dad (like say have someone write graffiti on the parts car, or have it seem like someone took the car wheels and tires, or smash the windshield with a brick).

    Chris I want to buy wheels for my 2006 jaguar xtype
    the wheels I’m using right now the tire size is 255/45/R17 factory tires
    But I’m trying to get 215/45/R17
    I want to know if it will affect the car
    Please reply I need your advice

      if 215/255 is the width then 215 gives you less grip, if it's the height your speedometer accuracy gets thrown off, your top speed is a bit lower, but your acceleration is a bit better

    it's pretty obvious some "luxury" car brans rip people off with junk.
    I guess there is cheap, there is good, and there is rip off.

    One big big advantage is you can do a complete engine rebuild and take your time. Then swap engines and rebuild the other. Disadvantages are parts tend to wear out simular, so unless you can see car first not always good deal. Especially sun damaged plastic parts.

    In the UK cars are so cheap there's no reason not to get a parts car especially for older cars. You can buy an X-Type for instance with a blown head gasket in mint condition for £300 if that

    Yes, financially, it may be good, but who is going to have a rusting junk car in their driveway or back yard... Actually, maybe your first car should be the parts car and fix the auction car.. It looked pretty good...
